We cannot do justice in words, what an incredible villa and the experience is unparalleled! The owner has been super. The food that our villa chefs are preparing has set a high bar for us, their passion for food and love for our family as overwhelmed us ( we have adopted them as you you can see in the picture of 3 generations of our family!). We are having a blast! More update later...
Just a short note to thank you and your efforts on planning and arranging our stay at
Villa for 7 days in August. The owners were gracious hosts and we
enjoyed their company when we needed it. The meals that were prepared by the villa chef
were as delicious as any 3-star Michelin restaurant, & I gained a few pounds as I
discovered, but this was "The Highlight of Our Life" as my extended family of 18 all agreed.
I still never
I hope all is well with you and I will recommend your rental company to my friends
Our host is the most gracious woman we ever met. Her villa is spendid our chef Valentino and his wife Larisa were cooking 5 star meals during our stay, our family will remember this vacation for all our lives. Thank you for these memories!
How can we begin to thank you for the wonderful week we have spent at this incredible villa We were able to come as a family and enjoy the beautiful Tuscan countryside. It was a trip of a lifetime to be able to have our children and grandchildren share our heritage. Our sincere thanks to the lovely owners for making this such a memorable trip. They were instrumental in making our stay here so enjoyable
Thank you for a most enjoyable time at your villa My family had the best time and have not stopped talking about the time spent at this incredible villa. We adored your beautiful villa and all that went with it.
We look forward to visiting again
The Villa exceeded expectations in every way. It was more beautiful than the photos, particularly the setting, mountains and all. The kitchen was better stocked with staples such as tea, sugar, salt pepper etc and equipment than expected. Towel service was more frequent than the once a week indicated in the introductory materials. The bedrooms were true to the photos and all spacious and comfortable. The only negative which
had nothing to do with the Villa, was the location. It was further from Florence than I expected and it took nearly two hours to get to the city by train (drive to Pistoia, get tickets, train ride of 1 hr, 10 min etc). It was closer to Lucca though, which we enjoyed and Cinque Terre; a most unique experience.
The owner and her translator were very helpful with suggestions and directions and were warm and friendly. The owner invited us all into her home before our Friday night farewell dinner for a tour and a drink- a very nice touch! The only suggestion I?d make is to be certain one of them is on hand during the week for problems. Neither was available on Thursday and part of Friday.the house chefs were also very helpful. They acted as on premises staff and translators as well, since they were in house the afternoons they prepared dinners for us at the Villa. Incidentally, they are very a talented chef/sommelier combo.
The meals they prepared were excellent and I?d highly recommend them to other potential guests. The cooking session was a lot of fun and something all participants totally enjoyed. My grandson suggested that more available converters would be helpful. As for Papavero Rentals, your assistance, Patrice in familiarizing us with the area and the options for sightseeing was invaluable. Thank you for your time, effort, attention to detail and patience. It was truly appreciated. I will be pleased to recommend organization to others.
